High-flying Spixworth slipped up at home in the Premier Division, losing 3-2 to Reepham Town.

Although Spixworth had most of the early play, Joe Wright put Reepham ahead from close range. Early in second half, Reepham pushed forward and Stephen Drake scored twice to extend their lead to 3-0.

Spixworth then had a player sent off but still created chances and eventually scored through Shaun Wones. Paul Cook added a second goal late in the game to finish the scoring.

Lewis Brown got a hat-trick for Dersingham Rovers, with Timothy Pepper and Connor Daniels also scoring as Kirkley & Pakefield Reserves were beaten 5-1, to move up to third. Michael Tacon got the goal for the visitors.

Harleston Town moved away from the relegation zone, beating struggling Wroxham Reserves 3-0, Chris Hall scoring twice and Scott Roberts getting the other.
